Same problem - rear evaporator leaking - I was just quoted $755 to fix
rear evaporator has corroded and needs to be replaced. Apparently this is a common problem with Chrylsler minivans.
No AC at all. When charged, system leaks at rear evaporator near passenger side rear tire.
Blowing warm air, had system filled with leak check, 2 weeks later A/C failed again, saw fluid in the driveway. Quoted $810 from dealer, $830 from LRS. Really upset about this. Not covered under 100k power train warranty according to dealer.
The A/C was only blowing hot air. I took the vehicle to Boulevard Chrysler Dodge in Montreal. I was told rear evaporator needed to be changed. $850 repair plus tax. I use the A/C less than 4 months out of the year. Very disappointed. Will never purchase another Chrysler product again.
Salt corrosion rear evaporater. Needs replacing
2008 van hissing and blowing warm air. Took it to a shop and they said it was the rear evaporator system. Going to cost me $1000 to fix. Leaving for Florida so have to get it fixed. Really not happy that it is costing so much.
rear evaporator and extension tubes
Rear evaporator leaking. Around $800 to fix.
Hey guys, found a vendor selling the Mopar rear evaporator shipped to my door on ebay for under 40$! Normally it is crazy expensive and annoying to pay hundreds of dollars. Its really easy and simple to find your year for your van so you know your getting the right one. Here is the link to where I got mine! http://www.ebay.com/itm/MOPAR-CHRYSLER-MINIVAN-EVAPORATOR-REAR-/261993820638
Same issue, AC blowing hot air. Tried recharging it but low side pressure was inaccurate due to compressor not kicking in. Unable to recharge so I took it to my mechanic. He diagnosed as rear evaporator leak and said $999 to fix, including parts and labor, plus tax. Checked the local stealerships and they all reported costs from $600 to $1000. I checked the stealership I purchased the van from (used) two months and less than 2000 miles ago and they said roughly $650. However, I am loathe to give them any more money, I've had plenty of other issues with them. So I think it's the local repairshop and cursing Chrysler every chance I get. A class action lawsuit against Chrysler seems in order here with the amount of similar reports.

Appears to be the same problem, AC starts blowing hot air. I tried recharging it but that didn't work, since the compressor wouldn't kick in so the recharging couldn't find the right low side pressure. My mechanic diagnosed it as the rear evaporator coil and confirmed that he's seen several of these. To repair the whole issue, he wants $999, including parts and labor, plus tax. I called around to the area dealerships and they all quoted anywhere from $600 to $1000. Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of faith in the one that quoted $600. The stealership I bought it from is 1.5 hours away and I've already had issues with them so I didn't want to go out to there, but they quoted $650 even though the car was purchased there (used) almost exactly two months ago. I don't know what to do other than curse Chrysler every chance I get. A $1000 is ridiculous for a van I've only had two months and less than 2000 miles.
I am replacing the rear evaporator and need to know how much oil to put in it as I assemble the new one.
Rear evaporator corroded and failed. GOOD NEWS - Found the replacement upgraded evaporator (post fix) on ebay for only $39 ! Brand new with valve.. Working like a charm. I guess there were many more made during the recall then needed. Sure nice to pay a low price vs. the hundreds the dealer wanted Here is link http://www.ebay.com/itm/MOPAR-DODGE-AND-CHRYSLER-MINIVAN-EVAPORATOR-REAR-2008-2009-2010-2011-/261993820638?hash=item3d000c71de&vxp=mtr
Rear A/C evaporator leaking.
keeps blowing seals on expansion valve. valve been replaced twice. will not hold charge overnight..
Air-conditioner is hissing and is blowing out warm air. The rear condensing coil is leaking oil everywhere. Super unhappy.
No rear a/c at all
What's happening is there are 2 different metals where they go into the rear conDenser that corode each other. So after 5 10 years they leak. You can cap off in front or replace rear condenser.
